PHOEBE LEGERE AT ABILENE In Rochester! November 15


Musician-singer-songwriter PHOEBE LEGERE will be appearing 
@Abilene Bar & Lounge November 15 




Phoebe will be performing her original hits along with classic foot stomping favorites.
With Andrew Alling & Washboard Dave Paprocki 

Phoebe's latest album, HEART OF LOVE, reached #18 on the ROOTS Charts. Her rascal outlaw SQUEEZE ME accordion album will drop in January.

The Abilene show is a fundraiser for Phoebe's 501 (c) 3 Foundation for New American Art, a nonprofit that brings art and music to underserved children in low-income communities.

NPR called Phoebe Legere’s musicianship “Breathtaking.” You can get lost in the sheer beauty of Phoebe Legere’s singing. 

The New York Times compares her to Edith Piaf.

Legere’s powerhouse piano and squeezebox virtuosity embrace Harlem stride, modal improvisation and New Orleans jazz and blues.

Legere started playing music when she was three years old. “Acadian and Cajun music is in my blood. That’s where I learned everything."

When Phoebe straps on her accordion she delivers authentic Cajun Joy. “I love to bring people together. I love to see them dance and smile.”

This is a rare opportunity to experience Phoebe’s range in an intimate environment. Phoebe is known for jams that blend jazz, blues, Zydeco, and Native American medicine chants into a spicy gumbo.

All proceeds from the show go to Phoebe’s nonprofit Foundation for New American Art, a 501 c3 organization that brings Art and Music to the children of low-income communities.

“Phoebe Legere is one of the most, inspired and talented creative-supernovas on the planet.” Hits Magazine

“She can maintain a rollicking left hand that segues easily from stride to boogie-woogie while tickling the piano's upper register into sublime submission.” – New York Times

The Tridexterous Andrew Alling, a one-man jamband opens playing acoustic guitar, organ bass pedals and the harmonica, often simultaneously.

PHOEBE LEGERE ART

"Phantom Kiss Over Frenchman's Bay," by PHOEBE LEGERE. Oil on canvas. In Phoebe's words: I painted this after I encountered a Harbor Dolphin as I paddled my inflatable kayak. I was a little alarmed when I saw the fin, but what a sweetie. We stayed together for about an hour."

----------------------------------
In Phoebe's own words: I painted this on a little bay of Lake Ontario in late July. I was so happy..but suddenly one of the coils in my Volvo engine exploded taking all six cylinders with it. I had it towed from Fair Haven to Syracuse Volvo."










From Phoebe's tweet @Legere : I painted King Leonidas preparing for Thermopylae on this grocery bag. #Reuse #Sparta #transmedia

PHOEBE LEGERE and
DOUG PROTSIK
at THE HARVEST BALL

NOON
Center Stage
Starks, Maine

In Phoebe's own words: 

"I'm feeling better...thank you so much for your emails and messages....I traveled 7500 miles this summer, performing in schools, prisons, churches, powwows and little bars...living in my tent...the road took a bite out of me...but I'm getting my strength back...this weekend I'll be performing close to my home in Mid-Maine

"I'm very proud to be playing with Doug Protsik, Executive Director of the Maine Fiddle Camp at the Harvest Ball on Sunday Oct. 7 at 12 noon in Starks, Maine. 

"We'll be doing a program of Maine traditional music, Mi'kmaq, Abenaki, Cajun and Acadian songs... showing that American music has a deep Tap Root in the Native American Medicine Songs of the Northeast coast...


"The instrumentation, accordion and fiddle, is exactly what you would have heard say, a hundred years ago...before the record companies got their hooks in American Music and started manipulating it to make money. 

"We teach children this traditional music ..we must keep playing and teaching so that the music of the Canadian/USA Borderland doesn't die with us!"
